AP govt encourages solar power generation

The Andhra Pradesh government on March 25 announced its policy for encouraging solar power production in the state and issued a GO (No. 22) to this effect. In view of the potential to harness solar power, it was felt that net metering facility be provided to the consumers to generate solar power for self-consumption and feeding excess power into the grid when it is not being consumed by them.

AP Transco recently installed 100 kw solar plant at Vidyut Soudha, Hyderabad on a pilot basis and is following the net metering facility.

As per the new policy, net metering facility will be implemented for consumers who intend to encourage solar green energy and set up solar PV plants at unutilized places like roof-tops, waste lands, buildings of individual households, industries, offices, institutions, residential complexes etc.

Subsidy will be provided by the government of India through NREDCAP up to 30 per cent on the cost of the panel up to a capacity of 500 kw without battery support.
